Overall the place was good, it was clean and well maintained. The staff was also accommodating, as they responded to our complaints about our room. If you're on a family vacation, choose room 8, 9, 10, 'cause they are close to each other.

If your looking for a nice and comfortable place to rest for the evening, this is a reasonable choice. The guest house is located very near the airport (walking distance), and not so far away from the ferry port (10 minutes by tricycle). The guest house itself is nice, clean and orderly. There is also free Wi-Fi so you can...

You get what you pay for in this place. It is close to the airport, the staff are very helpful with whatever you need. They facilitated our ferry tickets rebooking three times which would have been a disaster for me to do. The best thing is they have a kitchen and a dining area where you can cook your own...

We only stayed for one night because of a flight the next day and I'm glad we didn't stay longer. We had booked a twin room with shared bathroom and when we arrived at 11 o clock in the morning we were told to wait until 2 o clock for our room to be ready (which is totally ok since...

We arrived midnight so we are not dead tired to investigate the place and we don't know where the front door is located since the door is a travel agency and next to it is a garage so we rang the bell and lights came on. We were greeted 2 men and checking in was a breeze and they help...

A basic hotel. The room was tiny, had no window and was really hot. The A/C took forever to cut through the heat. The bathroom was nearly as big as the room itself. The did help to organise a bike to hire for island exporlation. It is a long way from shops. Service was good and they are the only...

Room was small, but cosy, with comfortable bed, tv and shower. But the biggest advantage, which makes Marcelina Guesthouse a 5 star place, is its...kitchen. Guesthouse is very close to the Marcela Plaza and local marketplace. So if you get interesting ingredients, you can prepare it in the kitchen which is equipped with 2 grills and consume it on the...

dont bother driving there, it's literally down the road from the airport. the rooms are basic with rather thin walls, but although the place was almost full (both locals and international guests) we had no issue with noise. staff is friendly and helpful, and will book ferry tickets (no uplift) or the standard array of tours (reasonable uplift, much better...

The rooms are small but clean. The place offers value for money and the staff are nice. Its close to the airport and about 1.7k from the ferry. You can walk out the door and get tricycles easy enough. The ground floor will assist you with booking travel tours. They can also provide a van with driver for around 2.5k...

“I didn't see any rooms other than the one we stayed in. I suspect they are all similar. Perhaps try to get one away from the kitchen and bath area for your own sanity and peacefulness.”
